Welcome!


Welcome to the “Pathophysiology of the Placenta” Group, headed by Isabella Ellinger. This group is part of the Department of Pathophysiology and Allergy Research at the Center of  Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology of the Medical University of Vienna in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

The primary aim of my research group is to study uptake/traffic/effects of maternal macromolecules at the materno-fetal interface under physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions.

The second important mission is science education and scientific communication /knowledge dissemination.

Science communication I

ScienceArt - Exploring the Interface(s) of Science and Art

A simple artistic piece can also provide a fantastic tool to communicate

science across different fields as well as to the public, and makes it easier

to raise awareness stimulate ideas and foster innovation.

Initiated in 2015, the YSA in cooperation with the "Creative and Critical

Journal Club" invited everyone in the MediUniVie to participate by

submitting works of art that communicate scientific ideas for a competitive

exhibition on the occasion of the YSA PhD symposium.
